TORONTO - For the 2011/2012 winter season, Nolitours and Transat Holidays are proud to offer new vacation packages to the Caribbean from North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay.

Weekly direct flights from North Bay and Sault Ste. Marie to Punta Cana are available to book now, for travel starting December 20.

The Thunder Bay direct flight program has now been expanded to offer three new destinations, with weekly direct flights to Punta Cana, Varadero and Jamaica, bookable now for travel starting December 22.

Transat’s Sun packages, sold under the Nolitours and Transat Holidays brands, will be more readily accessible as CanJet, Transat’s partner airline, will operate weekly flights from these cities aboard a new generation Boeing 737-800.

All products are now available for sale.

“With this exciting development, we are writing a new page in Transat’s history by bringing Northern Ontario closer to the Caribbean’s stunning beaches. Our clients in Ontario will be able to choose from a comprehensive range of resorts sold under the Nolitours and Transat Holidays’ brands. As you can see, we are committed to expanding our program in Ontario,” said Michael DiLollo, president of Transat Tours Canada.

Passengers flying from Northern Ontario can now also enjoy a CanJet Select upgrade on all CanJet flights.

In keeping with CanJet’s dedication to providing its clients with the optimum in-flight experience, this option offers superior comfort and services such as priority check-in, additional baggage allowance and a welcome glass of champagne (Southbound).

The flights will be operated as follows:

North Bay to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Tuesdays, December 20, 2011 to April 3, 2012

Sault Ste. Marie to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Tuesdays, December 20, 2011 to April 3, 2012

Thunder Bay to:

- Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: Thursdays, December 22, 2011 to March 29, 2012
- Varadero, Cuba: Thursdays, December 22, 2011 to April 5, 2012
- Montego Bay, Jamaica: Thursdays, December 22 to April 5. 2012

Nolitours’ early booking promotion

Travellers, who book a vacation package at one of Nolitours’ Cameleon resorts by October 31, 2011 for travel between December 18, 2011 and April 30, 2012, will save $100 per room.

Best price guarantee

Transat Holidays’ best price guarantee is back again this season with even more advantages.

If a Transat Holidays package becomes available at a lower price than the one it was purchased at, the difference will be refunded in cash.

The guarantee also offers an upgrade to Option Plus (on Air Transat flights) or CanJet Select (on CanJet flights), which includes complimentary seat selection, priority check-in and baggage handling, a comfort kit and various other perks.

This year, for the first time, it also includes a $100 credit per room for onboard purchases at the Duty Free Shop.

"We offer an unequalled range of products in Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica, and we are proud to have made it easier for our clients from Northern Ontario to travel to these destinations,” concluded Mr. DiLollo.
